Trevor Frost reflects in the Ethiopian Highlands

Once again, our man in the field, Trevor Frost landed in a remote location while shooting for National Geographic. In a season of 21 new passport stamps, we have a hard time keeping up with his travels. But this time it was in the Ethiopian Highlands, where he suffered a deluge of 20 days of rain while living in a tent at 12,000 feet at the tail end of their rainy season. We’re telling the waterproof/breathable gear side of his story in our upcoming Spring catalog, but the images were so spectacular that we couldn’t wait to share them for some adventure travel inspiration. —LYA Editor

The first 10 days of October we had more rain than any entire month of October on record. So when the weather did break, even for a second, we cured our weather blues by making crazy photos in wild outfits. Here my friends, Vivek and Jeff, pose with farming axes, Gabis - a traditional Ethiopian wrap, and a gelada monkey skull.
